Holy Land Pilgrimage 2010: Day #4 Nazareth

Day #4
December 22, 2010 9:00 PM

Just a quick recap of the day, since I plan to get up before dawn and go to a deserted place to pray to the Father. We left for Nazareth and had Mass at the Grotto of the Annunciation. 'Verbum Caro HIC Factum Est'- from the altar in the grotto- "The Word was made flesh HERE." It was just part of Mary and Joseph's house. We also saw Joseph's workshop, their Synagogue where Jesus read Isaiah and nearly got killed, and the well at which Mary would have drawn water. Afterward, we went to and climbed Mount Tabor, the Mountain of the Transfiguration. I had a good talk with a friend of mine on the bus ride back. I'll fill in other details and experiences tomorrow if I think of it.
